Self-defence Boer groep threatened

Small Boer-self-defence groep at West Rand “being threatened with elimination by ANC-youth league”, they write:

The small “Azri ‘El Burger Party’  issued a news release on November 29 2010 stating that they ‘are aware of claims that some of their leaders will be eliminated by the ANC Youth League, and that evidence will be planted to place the blame on the Azri El Burger Party’. They said in the press statement below that their purpose is self-defence: to protect their own people from crime and to help each other when they are in trouble. For instance they recently found back a youth who had gone missing and brought him back to his worried family.  “We stand up against criminals, people who are corrupt and fight for our human rights as contained in the  Human Rights Manifesto,’  they stated in their news release.

ANC wants court to approve genocidal song SHOOT THE BOER…

ANC will hear early next year whether their hatespeech-song KILL/SHOOT THE BOER will remain banned…

Afrikaners protest against KILL BOER slogan application by ANC JoburgHighCourtNov292010

2010-11-29  Afrikaans singer Sunette Bridges (above-left)  and other protestors protested the ruling ANC’s genocidal hatesong KILL/SHOOT THE BOER outside the Johannesburg High Court while South Africa’s ruling party applied inside for the re-legalisation of their genocidal hatespeech song SHOOT THE BOER which was banned earlier this year. The Afrikaans human-rights protestors tore up the SA Constitution and wore T-shirts with the faces of world leaders such as Germany’s Angela Merkel with the words “Kill the Boer, Germany don’t care’; Obama’s face with the words “Yes we can kill the Afrikaner’, the UK Queen ‘s face with the words “I love Afrikaner Genocide’’ and others.

——————————-

The ANC will only hear early next year whether their application will succeed. Judge Leon Halgryn argued during the application yesterday that he still feels strongly that the ANC’s public singing of the words “Shoot the Boer’ (Dubulíbhunu) is an incitement to genocide and is hatespeech. “It is my opinion that the words ‘Shoot the Boer’ are inciting. It’s a crime.’

He cross-questioned the ANC’s legal counsel Advocate Gilbert Marcus about the appropriateness of still singing this song in the present time. “I realised that the song did form a part of the proud history of the ANC but good heavens is there really stilll an appropriate place for it today?”, he asked.

He will only deliver judgment early next year whether leave to appeal will be granted to the ANC. The ANC had lodged yesterday’s application because, they claimed, judge Halgryn ‘had not taken the historical context of the song into consideration in his ruling’.

ANC demands the right to sing parts of the genocidal song “because tens of thousands of people sing it…’ and ‘it’s not in the public interest to prohibit the song in its entirety…’

  • Marcus submitted that it was ‘not in the public interest to prohibit the song in its entirety because it is being sung by tens of thousands of people…’

Legal counsel for the civil-rights movement Afriforum, which earlier had also lodged a seperate criminal complaint of hatespeech against ANC-youth leader Malema for singing the song after it was legally banned, were also present — as were Delmas businessman Willem Harmse and Mohammed Vawda, who were also involved in a seperate interdict in which Harmse had tried to stop his business-partner Vawda from using the words on a placard. The two men have since then come to an ameniable agreement about the matter.

Pro-Afrikaans-Action group members also demonstrated outside the court on the steps, headed by leader Dr Dan Roodt. They tore up copies of the SA Constitution saying that ‘this Constitution provides us Afrikaners no protection. If you say ‘kill the Boer’ it’s an incitement to genocide’. Roodt said they wore their protest tshirts with the photos of world-leaders on them ‘to create international awareness with’. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/ANC-hoor-dan-oor-sy-liedjie-20101129

Toxic minewater disaster unavoidable in SA

Jan de Lange, Sun, 21 Nov 2010 – The Oct 2010 deadline for preventing rising acid mine drainage to cause a massive ecological disaster in the Central Witwatersrand has come and gone – because the ANC-regime’ can’t make decisions on how to stop it. Scientific analysis over the past 15 years shows that the acid,  very toxic waste-water inside the gold-mines will rise to the ecologically perilous level of 150 metres below the surface by 2012 – and that after the end of October 2010 nothing humanly possible can still be done to avoid this.

————————————–

Acid toxic mine drainage is destroying underground dolomite of greater Witwatersrand and poisoning water systems 2010 The old Witwatersrand gold-mines acid, very toxic water is eating away at the underlying dolomite and already causing large sinkholes and massive water=pollution of the  world-famous Cradle of Humankind and the Krugersdorp Game Reserve. The SA President’s top advisor finds the entire idea so ‘lucricous’ that he first wants to hold “a national conversation’  about it.  Moreover a private company which has already sunk R75-million of their own money into a pilot plant to reprocess the acid water, is being stopped dead in its tracks by the black government’s overwhelming greed: the ANC-regime will only approve a full-scale plant to clean up the polluted water if they can get a 60% black-empowerment-share in it.

———————–

Sound scientific proposals to avoid this disaster have been in government’s hands for more than two years, but nothing has been done. On the contrary, the presidency’s planning commission Minister Trevor Manuel found the very idea of acid minewater flooding the streets of the Witwatersrand ‘ludicrous’. 

From February 2012 onwards, this very toxic acid mine effluent will rapidly start to erode dolomite structures in Johannesburg and the near East Rand — and shortly thereafter the water will be poisoning all the boreholes and fountains.

——————————————-

As accurately predicted 15 years ago, this already started since September 2002 on the West Rand in the Cradle of Humankind, the Krugersdorp Game Reserve and the Sterkfontein caves since September 2002. 

From February 2012 the first acid water will emerge above ground at Cinderella East —  an old, abandoned shaft less than 100 metres from Rondebult Road in Boksburg – very close to Boksburg’s central business district.

The toxic poison will spread from there at the rate of 57 megalitres (million litres) a day – four times that the steady poisoning of  West Rand, where 15.7 megalitres is being discharged every day. Acid Mine drainage from WestRandMines Eating away underground dolomite Boksburg since 2007

From February 2012 onwards, this very toxic acid mine effluent will rapidly start to erode dolomite structures in Johannesburg and the near East Rand — and shortly thereafter the water will be poisoning all the boreholes and fountains.  As accurately predicted 15 years ago, this already started since September 2002 on the West Rand in the Cradle of Humankind, the Krugersdorp Game Reserve and the Sterkfontein caves since September 2002. 

—————————

A plan to avoid the crisis should have been implemented by October 2010 at the latest: the model for the calculation was compiled by various scientists, mainly geohydrologists, for a period of more than 15 years.

Marius van Biljon, who has an MSc degree in geohydrology, started doing these calculations in the Western Witwatersrand in the mid-90s, at the behest of the old JCI. By 1998 he had computed that in October 2002 the first mine water would flow from the old Swartrif shaft near the Epol plant in Randfontein. His calculation was out by two weeks: the water started to flow out two weeks earlier, in September 2002. Today this toxic-waste water outflow is polluting all the riverine systems in the Krugersdorp Game Reserve, the Cradle of Humankind and the world-famous Sterkfontein Caves. It is also poisoning farm dams and other natural water sourcesand farmers’ crops and livestock are being poisoned so badly that the supermarkets now refuse to buy food produced from that region.

Van Biljon was later employed by Golder & Associates, one of the world’s largest and best-known environmental consultancy firms, to develop precisely the same model for the Central and Eastern Witwatersrand basin. Mining plans for every single shaft were obtained. These were digitised, enabling calculations of total volumes created by underground mining activity. The group then calculated water inflows, scientifically termed recharge. This they used to develop models to arrive at the rate at which the acid water was rising.

FEBRUARY 2012

The model showed that the water would reach the critical environmental level (CEL) by February 2012, said Van Biljon. The CEL is now the point at which the acid water will reach the low-lying dolomite, destroy it and cause sinkholes – in the Central Basin, right in the centre of the country’s most populous areas. At the important south-western vertical shaft of the old ERPM mine in Germiston, the CEL has been established to be about 150 metres below the surface. The rate at which the water is rising in five shafts in the Central Basin is measured every week by the East Rand Proprietary Mines’ (ERPM) ’s ventilation division, using measuring instruments beneath old skips which are sent down to the water in the different shafts.

The data are used to test the accuracy of Van Biljon and Golder & Associates’ model. To date the model’s accuracy has proved to be above 95%.

Presidency’s planning commission minister found the idea ‘ludicrous:

Scientists involved in compiling the model have until now been “unwilling to comment on it for ethical reasons” – however recent dismissive remarks by Trevor Manuel, the Planning Commission Minister in the Presidency, greatly alarmed them.

  • In Augus 2010 Manuel said that “what was needed was a national conversation on an empirical basis”, because “the idea that acid mine drainage would run through the streets of Johannesburg next week and that we would all need to wear Wellington boots, was totally ludicrous”. …

Perhaps not in Johannesburg as yet —  but that is exactly what will soon happen in nearby Boksburg, another scientist who wished to remain anonymous, told Sake24.

Government greed stops private company from cleaning up the acid water:

Jaco Schoeman, MD of Western Utilities Corporation, is the brains behind a proposed water-treatment facility to pump out and process the acid water. However he said that “the government insisted that the company form a public-private partnership to operate the plant with ‘black empowerment partners’ (from the ruling African National Congress). Western Utilities is a wholly owned subsidiary of Watermark Global, which is listed on the Alternative Investment Market in London. It was originally established to fund, design and build the water treatment plant capable of processing 75 mega litres of acid mine drainage – the current overflow at Krugersdorp is 15,7 megalitres a day.  Schoeman said Western Utilities had already undertaken a pilot project, which cost R75million and for which the SA government had paid nothing at all.

Acid Mine Drainage poisoning Cradle of Humankind Krugersdorp Game Reserve Sterkfontein Caves

The Cradle of Humankind is a World Heritage Site first named by UNESCO in 1999, about 50 kilometres northwest of Johannesburg, South Africa in the Gauteng province. This site covers 47,000 hectares (180 sq mi)[1]; it contains a complex of limestone caves, including the Sterkfontein Caves, where the 2.3-million year-old fossil Australopithecus africanus (nicknamed “Mrs. Ples“) was found in 1947 by Dr. Robert Broom and John T. Robinson. The find helped corroborate the 1924 discovery of the juvenile Australopithecus africanus skull, “Taung Child“, by Raymond Dart, at Taung in the North West Province of South Africa, where excavations still continue. The name Cradle of Humankind reflects the fact that the site has produced a large number, as well as some of the oldest, hominid fossils ever found, some dating back as far as 3.5 million years ago.[2] Sterkfontein alone has produced more than a third of early hominid fossils ever found.[3]

 

Nigerian drug-gangs enslave Afrikaans kids

 ‘Our kids are turned into Nigerian sex-slaves…

November 27 2010 – BLOEMFONTEIN, Free State. Volksblad reader “Len” writes:   “About three weeks ago I turned at the corner of Haldon Road into Van Schalkwyk  – and suddenly saw a beautiful redheaded white girl, about 20 years old, being chased like cattle by a Nigerian man. ..

—————

I saw something similar near Stellenbosch a few years back – and nobody raised a finger then either. The girl seemed ‘retarded’ somehow – drugged —  and that’s why people also just ignore these tragic children because they are in a drugged condition. This ‘look-away and ignore’ culture is exactly why these hardened drug-criminals can do whatever they want to with our young people. Our young girls and boys are recruited when they start being targetted at schools and terrorised until their ‘new friend” comes to their aid…

“These ‘new friends’ work for the drugs-lords – whose ‘job’ it is to enslave our children as quickly as possible so that they can earn fast money while the kids slowly die from addiction and prostitution-related diseases and injuries.

  • Enslaved children passed along to high-level politicians and cops for sexual abuse: The more of our children they can get in their filthy hands, the more money they earn. Corrupt police officers work closely with these drugs-warlords in exchange for ‘free sex’ with these young girls, who are also passed along for the abuse by senior police officers and politicians in South Africa.

These captive girls (and boys) are constantly tortured, beaten and raped until they start submitting to their ‘work’ voluntarily and start ‘working’ for the Nigerian drug-gangsters. They know that they can’t go to the police to complain: the cops in SA are a part of the problem:  and these Nigerian ‘immigrants’ are all over South Africa – since 1995 when the borders were thrown wide-open, more than 175,000 Nigerians have descended on Hillbrow in Johannesburg alone. And the vast majority of these Nigerian gangsters are drugs-dealers and enslavers of our children.

Len writes: Our city of Bloemfontein has become one of the busiest corridors for the trade in human beings, according to Time Magazine. The Nigerians simply transport the children (and even their moms) from city to city…

———————

Our uncaring attitude to do anything about this makes it so easy for this filthy pigs to ruin our children. Their chances of escaping from heroin-addiction for instance, stands at only one child per 10,000 abducted. Our children have no safe havens to flee to.  Isn’t it high time that we start showing our children that there are adult they can still rely on – and that their children one day will also be able to find reliable adults to help them if needed?

Farmer Jurie Louw beaten senseless, Krugersdorp: nothing robbed

Jurie Louw, 38,  assaulted, left in coma, farm Rietfontein, Kromdraai Nov 28 2010: assaulted with hatchet and knobkierie and left comatose: nothing robbed – SAPS only archived a ‘house robbery’ and are not investigating attempted murder http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Boer-erg-geslaan-sukkel-om-te-praat-na-aanval-20101128

——————

2010-11-29 Amanda Roestoff  – KRUGERSDORP. Boer Julie Louw, 38, of the farm Rietfontein at Kromdraai near Krugersdorp, was discovered beaten comatose. A neighbour found the farmer next to his Toyoto Corolla’s opened doors and a flat tyre on the tar-road leading to his farm. He suffered ‘serious facial, leg and back injuries’ and was rushed to the local hospital, which appropriately enough was renamed after a communist ‘freedom fighter’ called Yusuf Dadoo. Doctors said the injuries show that he was assaulted by someone with a hatchet and another person with a knobkierie, a ‘traditional weapon’.

Warrant officer Dennis Jones believes that the Boer was attacked either late Friday evening or in the early-morning hours of Saturday November 28 2010. They confirmed that ‘an unknown number of men gained access to the Louw farmhouse.” They ‘could not say’ whether anything was robbed but they are not investigating attempted murder charges, only ‘armed robbery’. The farm is located near the Brookwood trout farm and the rural Kloofzicht Tourist Lodge. The police tried to interrogate the comatose farmer in hospital but unsurprisingly ‘were unable to communicate’ with him. And orse just as unsurprisingly no-one was arrested: the SAPS specialised farm-tracking units which could have followed their traces were disbanded during ex-pres Thabo Mbeki ‘s inept reign.

Afrikaners tortured, killed by SAPS

Afrikaner security-technician Riaan Petrus Velloen, 37, killed by SAPS in custody,  Florida police cells, Roodepoort S.Africa – nobody charged – police offers no ‘regrets’ nor ‘condolances’ to the grieving family…

—————-

2010-11-29 Amanda Roestoff of Beeld newspaper reports that 37-year-old Afrikaner security-camera technician Riaan Petrus Velloen was beaten up so brutally by the Florida police in Roodepoort that the healthy man died in the police cells within just hours. There were no charges against Velloen when he died in police custody, said his mother-in-law Mrs Ria Hogan, 50, grand-mother of his son Kevin Hogan, 15.

“Police claim he was drunk but he was not a drinker. We don’t know why he was arrested and there have been no formal charges lodged through the charge office,’ she said. She said her daughter received a phone call from Riaan’s sister – who informed him that he was beaten to death in the police cells. SAPS spokesman Lt.col. Lungelo Dlamini indeed confirmed that Velloendied while in police-custody and that a ‘murder-dossier was opened to investigate ‘the incident’. Hogan said the family have no idea where he was arrested, or why.

“It’s so heart-sore, because he was a kind, loving man who always tried to make you happy even if he had to put his own needs last. The police should be there to protect people – one cannot trust them any longer.’

His son Kevin was devastated about his father’s death. “He always listened to everything I ever told him and I will miss all the special things we did together. Velloen’s remains have not yet been released for burial because the investigation has not been completed. The SAPS ‘would not say whether any of the arresting officers would be criminally charged or prosecuted in an internal hearing”.

They also did not offer their condolances nor regrets to the family. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Man-dood-in-selle-na-polisie-glo-aanrand-20101128

TWO PICTURES ABOVE: June 9 2009 – deniseryan@mweb.co.za sent around an internet petition, demanding anvestigation into the deeply mysterious death of Kriel old-age pensioner James Brown in a cell of the local police station . The TV programme Third Degree, broadcast by ETV in South Africa, showed these pictures of the late Mr James Brown, a 09-year-old Afrikaner and also an Alzheimer’s sufferer,  who was arrested at the Shoprite supermarket in Kriel – for ‘taking a chocolate bar without paying for it’. Ryan writes: “The old man was assaulted,  beaten and sprayed with pepper spray by the police officers who arrested him without any probable course for their behavior towards him – the old man did not resist arrest and the police officers were never in any danger from him at any stage. This old man did not know he was doing anything wrong because he was an Alzheimer’s sufferer – his doctor said his physical health was good, but he did suffer from Alzheimer.  “After his arrest, his civil rights were also violated  because he had nobody to assist him and his right to a phone call was not presented to him otherwise he could have been assisted by a family member or attorney.  “He died within  four hours of custody at the Kriel police station. This is what he looked like after four hours in a police cell – alone . Relatives questioned the reason for the (clearly fresh) FATAL head wound to the back of his head because the footage on the CCTV which showed his arrival at the Shoprite in Kriel, proved that he ‘d had no injuries at all. “ http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2009/06/why-did-this-alzheimer-sufferer-die-in.html

SAPS TORTURED AFRIKANER FARM FAMILY MALHERBE with CATTLE-PRODS, PLASTIC-BAG CHOKING TORTURE IN POTGIETERSRUST, JAN 28 2010

Heavily armed men in police uniforms who showed up in police vehicles tortured an Afrikaner farm family in Mokopane/Potgietersrust on January 28 2010 – tied them up, covered their heads in plastic bags and shocked them with cattle-prods. Injured were Okkie Malherbe (63) wife Emmerentia (53), of the Olem farm on Doelen, and watched by their little granddaughter Kaycee, 5. Malherbe’s son WD, 34 said the attack took about two hours. The family had opened the door to their torturers because “they thought they were police officers”. Investigations found later that the attack-gang had indeed been members of the SAPS after investigators checked the police-vehicles’ number plates.

Deaths in SA prisons often due to torture by officials:

Nov 29 2010 – CAPE TOWN PARLIAMENT. The portfolio committees of correctional services and public works held a joint hearing about the ‘fruitless, wasteful expenditure on the building of new facilities” and “the torture of prison inmates at the hands of officials”.

In one such unnatural death, a number of officials were charged with culpable homicide when an inmate was killed during a mass assault on prisoners by officials, yet only one was found guilty. He was dismissed. Charges against the others were withdrawn. The MPs wanted to know why they had not been charged with murder, and were told that the police would be investigating the criminal charge against the dismissed official.

They also queried the inhumane treatment of inmates who ended up killing themselves. In one case, an inmate was locked in a cell that had no lights and, in another, an inmate who said he had been raped was found hanged in the shower area of the cell. There had been “a delay in transferring him to a rape centre, allegedly because there was no transport available”. The nurses who failed to examine the man were acquitted in a disciplinary hearing, and the officials who failed to arrange his transport to a rape centre were given a final warning. The MPs were unhappy with the lack of action against errant prison officials.

A number of extremely worrying trends have been found during an investigation into 55 unnatural deaths in prisons in 2009. The Civil Society Prison Reform Initiative said one of the “top concerns” was that despite guilty findings at discliplinary hearings,  not one correctional services official had been prosecuted in a criminal court in any of the unnatural death cases.

This was despite disciplinary internal enquiries finding them guilty of offences such as gross negligence and excessive use of force. “Of topmost concern is that in not one of the 55 cases has a single Department of Correctional Services (DCS) official been prosecuted yet,” the Initiative said.

  • “It is rare that officials are dismissed following the death of a prisoner.”

The CSPRI – a project of the Community Law Centre at the University of the Western Cape – said it had analysed a report by the Judicial Inspectorate which provided details of 55 “unnatural deaths” in 2009. “The CSPRI has analysed the data, discovering a number of extremely worrying trends.”

Deceased often brutally assaulted by officials:

It said in many of the cases, the deceased had been brutally assaulted by officials with batons, electric shields and booted feet. The official had then failed to provide “adequate and timeous” medical attention.

Nothing more than murder

In one case, involving the death of a 59-year old prisoner at Ebongweni Maximum Security Prison in Kokstad, an independent pathologist had found “death consistent with smothering” or an obstruction of mouth and nose.

  • “The incident happened on August 9 2009 and according to the inspectorate, no action has been taken by the DCS nor has the investigation by the police resulted in anything,” the CSPRI said.

The prisoner, known only by his initials ‘RT'”, must have died a horrible death – first severely beaten and then suffocated. This is nothing more than murder and all officials implicated should be prosecuted and punished accordingly.”

55% were suicides…

Other trends apparent from the 2009 Judicial Report indicated that 55% of the deaths were suicides. In a significant proportion of these, the prisoner was a known as a suicide risk. Despite this, “The DCS failed to take effective measures to prevent the suicide,” the CSPRI said.

  • “In nearly 65% of the 55 cases, the DCS had not taken any action against its officials although there is evidence indicating liability.”

Investigations by the police in the deaths of prisoners seldom progressed to a stage where a docket was handed to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

“The CSPRI is of the view that when a person dies in state custody, the state is liable until the matter has been properly investigated by independent and competent authorities and the findings indicate the contrary.

“In meeting its obligations under the UN Convention against Torture, South Africa is obligated to investigate promptly wherever there are reasonable grounds to believe that an act of torture or ill treatment has been committed in any territory under its jurisdiction.”

Poor, delayed and uncompleted investigations fostered a culture of impunity within the DCS, the CSPRI said. http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/Worrying-trends-in-prison-deaths-20101118

 

Afrikaans toddlers in armed attacks; Afrikaner dies in SAPS custody

Zane Visser, 6, hides in dad’s landrover during vicious attack, Donkerhoek Pretoria Nov 28 2010

  • “Pray – you will not see tomorrow,’ armed black attackers tell unarmed Afrikaans family…

2010-11-29 Six-year-old Zane Visser hid in his dad’s Land Rover after armed black attackers had dragged his injured father George from the vehicle and dumped in their homestead in Donkerhoek near Pretoria.

  • This is the fourth attack against Afrikaner families in the Boschkop police district within a month, reports  Hilda Fourie.

Attacked were George Visser, his life-partner Zelda Keulder and little Zane, 6.The black attackers held the Afrikaners at gunpoint and screamed vicious racist abuse at them throughout their Saturday-night ordeal. Visser was shot in the neck through the windshield of his car just after he had fetched the little boy from a birthday party.After he was shot the dad grabbed his little boy and  told him to hide in the back of the vehicle.”I started praying out loud.’ said Ms Keulder, 36, speaking to the news media at the Pretoria hospital where her partner was operated on. “One of the attackers yelled that I had better pray louder because none of us will see tomorrow.’ She was working inside the house at 9pm when she heard five shots fired in rapid succession. An armed black man ran into the front door, pistol-whipped her and threw her on the floor of the bedroom.Two black men then followed and dumped the injured Mr Visser next to his partner.The couple was brutally beaten, pistol-whipped.”They told us we were not going to make it,’ said Keulder. “I prayed and asked Dear Jesus to please help these attackers and to forgive them for what they were going to do to us.

‘ Where is the child? ‘

The attackers then asked them: ‘ where is the child’ and went outside to drag the terrified little Zane from the vehicle.

  • The attackers were frightened off when a vehicle arrived at the homestead: it was Mr Visser’s mom Leona, who lives just a few kilometres away from them and stopped by to fetch some pain-medication. This scared the attackers off. The family is convinced that they would have been murdered if it hadn’t been for his mother’s timely arrival. Nothing was robbed. Zane needed trauma-counselling for his ordeal. “I wish something can be done about this,’ said Keulder. “We live in a society where everybody just wants to flee overseas. If only we can give everybody jobs…’ http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Bid-maar-julle-gaan-nie-more-sien-nie-20101128

Antonella del Fabbro, (2) shot at while asleep between parents: Mooiplaats smallholding Nov 25 2010:

As only became known several days later, two-year-old Antonella Del Fabbro was also attacked at a Mooiplaats smallholding while she was asleep between her parents.
Armed attackers had fired at the sleeping family from outside their homestead and the parents were injured. When the first bullet hit dad Marco, 35, he grabbed the toddler girl from the bed and hid her in the hallway, telling her to stay put. He then returned to the bedroom while the shots were still being fired to help his wife Monya, 37. As he pulled her off the bed she was shot in a foot while he was shot another three times.

Eight spent bullet-cartridges were later found outside the bedroom window.
Del Fabbro told Beeld that they had just fallen asleep when they heard sounds at the window and the shooting started – just like that, from the outside.

“It is ludicrous to wake up because you are being shot at,’ he said. When I realised we were under fire I grabbed the little one and put her in the hallway. As I grabbed my wife and pushed her into the hallway too, my wife was shot in the foot and I was shot in the back. By that time they had already fired bullets into my hip.” Their twelve-year-old daughter Anya woke up from the shots in her bedroom. Four armed black men then climbed through the couple’s shattered bedroom window and ordered Del Fabbro at gunpoint to stand up and lie on the bed to be ‘tied up’. He said he couldn’t walk because bullets were fired into his legs and thigh. Another black man then walked into Anya’s room where the two girls were cowering, pointed a gun at their mother and ordered her back to the main bedroom. The two girls were left behind weeping and terrified, alone in the room while the gang plundered the main bedroom and fled. “I would not wish this on my worst enemy,’ said Del Fabbro. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Pa-4-keer-deur-ruit-geskiet-20101128

Afrikaner security-technician Riaan Petrus Velloen, 37, killed by SAPS in custody,  Florida police cells, Roodepoort S.Africa – nobody charged

2010-11-29 Amanda Roestoff reports that 37-year-old Afrikaner security-cameras technician Riaan Petrus Velloen was beaten up so brutally by the Florida police in Roodepoort that he died in the police cells. There were no charges against Velloen when he died in police custody, said his mother-in-law Mrs Ria Hogan, 50, the grand-mother of his son Kevin Hogan, 15. “Police claim he was drunk but he was not a drinker. We don’t know why he was arrested and there have been no formal charges lodged through the charge office,’ she said. She said her daughter received a phone call from Riaan’s sister – who informed him that he was beaten to death in the police cells. SAPS spokesman Lt.col. Lungelo Dlamini confirmed that he has died while in police-custody and that a ‘murder-dossier was opened to investigate ‘the incident’. Hogan said the family have no idea where he was arrested, or why. “It’s so heart-sore, because he was a kind, loving man who always tried to make you happy even if he had to put his own needs last. The police should be there to protect people – one cannot trust them any longer.’ His son Kevin was devastated about his father’s death. “He always listened to everything I ever told him and I will miss all the special things we did together. Velloen’s remains have not yet been released for burial because the investigation has not been completed. The SAPS ‘would not say whether any of the arresting officers would be criminally charged or prosecuted in an internal hearing…’

Afrikaners in South Africa are in a crucible of violence – US journalist:

November 28, 2010 US journalist Carol Forsloff writes:

“South Africa is in the crucible of violence, with daily clamors for help from individuals across the country, especially white minorities now a target of violence, the rest of the world has ignored.  On the pages for the United States Department of State, the list of countries underlined by America as having problems in human rights is lengthy.  These pages do not, however, include South Africa.

  Perhaps this is an example of being politically correct on racial matters, since to respond to the issue of black on white violence may have repercussions to the major power’s messages on human rights as being specific to minorities of color as opposed to white groups.  

“The United Nations and international human rights organizations make declarations frequently about human rights problems in Somalia, Kenya, Nigeria and other African countries on matters related involving everything from child trafficking to drug abuse.  Again the criminal violations against white groups in South Africa are conspicuous by that absence.

“A short entry on Facebook today by a white South African journalist brings a plaintive statement of his not being able to tolerate the problems anymore.

“I just don’t know what to do any more. We should move, but where to? I don’t think I can take living here much longer. I haven’t slept properly for three weeks.”

” This is a voice that speaks of a hurt so deep and awful that many of the people of South Africa are fearful every day.  It is a fear addressed in social media, but the major countries of the world do not address, although the problems are severe. 

“Every day speaks of violence and deprivation’, Forsloff notes:
